the first debate was hitting romney left and right with the zingers. >> well, governor romney is right, you are familiar with jobs being shipped overseas because you invested in companies that were shipping jobs overseas. >> jon: boom! >> you mentioned the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. well, governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets. (cheers and applause). >> jon: bam! >> the biggest geopolitical threat facing america you said russia. not al qaeda, you said russia. and the 1980s are calling to ask for their foreign policy back. (laughter and applause). >> jon: well, that was a little hackie. i mean that was -- that was a it will roasty. i wouldn't (bleep) your foreign policy with margaret thatcher's (bleep), come on! hickory dickory dock, your geopolitical understanding can suck my -- (laughter) sorry. that's -- no, please don't because then i'll do it again some night. (laughter) so the president had a good night. must have felt pretty confident because he was letting his professor or y'all side shine through. especially when it came to one cou
than to have president romney and tea party republicans in congress pulling him to the extreme right for the next eight years. christie for his part shrugged off the notion of political calculus in an interview last flight. >> the president does things that deserve praise, i will give him praise. and when the president does things that deserves scorn i'll give him scorn. when someone asks me an honest question i give an honest answer. how has the president been to deal with? he's been outstanding to deal with on this and i look forward to see him tomorrow. >> mitt romney is back on the trail in florida after turning a previously scheduled campaign event in ohio into a makeshift humanitarian relief event. >> we've got people right now that are having some hard times because of this terrible hurricane and the storm that followed it. and your generosity will make a difference. one of the things i've learned in life is you make the difference you can. >> buzz feed that lie plus rag reports the last minute switch away from romney's, quote, show leadership and get on the local news without
. so this situation is not looking too good for mitt romney right now. an these are valid reporter questions, correct? >> yeah, look, i think all questions are valid whether the campaign thinks so or not. i'm not going to sit here and justify governor romney's comments on fema. what i think he was trying to say is any time you get a federal agency and give them more money and power to the states, they do it better. i can be -- i can say that when i was in the governor's office here in tennessee. our emergency management team did such a better job dealing with tornados and the things we had to deal with on the ground. fema was this very large federal agency. i don't think it's appropriate for governor romney and i think the campaign is making the riot call to talk about any criticism of fema right now because we're all in this together. he's trying to do everything he can to help. he's kind of got a very tough line to kind of cross and straddle in the fact that he can't come out and criticize, he can't attack the president like he was doing the week before this because you don't wan
there. it's down to 47%, obama, 41% for romney. we'll be right back. fire bad! just have to fire roast these tomatoes. this is going to give you a head start on your dinner. that seems easier [ female announcer ] new progresso recipe starters. five delicious cooking sauces you combine with fresh ingredients to make amazing home-cooked meals. >>> welcome back to "hardball." we now know this election may very well come down to ohio. and in the last few days, the romney campaign has done some things even independent observers consider desperate. first came this from mitt romney last thursday in defiance, ohio, about an hour away from toledo. >> i saw a store today, one of the great manufacturers in this state, jeep, now owned by the italians, is thinking of moving all production to china. i will fight for every good job in america. i'm going to fight to make sure trade is fair, and if it's fair, america will win. >> well, it sounds terrible, but it's false. did you hear that, false, what he just said. chrysler which was bought by fiat said it's not taking any jobs from ohioans, it's addin
back inside "the war room." >> good evening, jennifer. >> jennifer: all right. so mitt romney seems to me, anyway, to be digging himself into a hole here. he put out a statement about fema a couple of days ago which was sort of a flip-floppy statement. but he has this other statement that he made during the debates. do you think this fema issue matters to republicans? >> yeah, let's not kid ourselves that these conservatives actually like mitt romney. this is an alliance of convenience. the enemy of my enemy is my friend. right now, barack obama is their biggest enemy. they're tolerating mitt romney. they already assume mitt romney is on the wrong side of every issue including this one. i don't think this flip-flop affects them. they hate romney and obama more. that's all that matters until the day after the election when we'll see them turn on romney in a big way. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: you mean when he loses. right? >> absolutely. >> jennifer: okay. >> they'll turn on him. >> jennifer: either way. >>
. >> reporter: which i find interesting. because you don't have mitt romney, right? >> we ran out of him -- >> reporter: you did? >> we had him. we got in all the republican primary candidates before halloween, and they ran out before he was even elected as running mate. >> reporter: i was like, my gosh, maybe you have to become president first before you get a mask. apparently not. >> no. >> reporter: ladies, for you, you have wigs here. >> we have the first lady, and i've been told by, this would work for ann romney. >> reporter: the high society wig for her. you'll be swamped today. opening at 10:00 this morning, and you'll stay open until 9:00 tonight. what is your advice? >> i would honestly come in as early as you can, because stuff is going to start running out. haven't cleaned us out yet, but it's getting close. >> reporter: you're on your way. also popular, '70s wear. you can always be cher. i got you, babe. come this way. this is a great couples costume. here is my sonny. wouldn't we be groovy in this? i have two other special guests with me. i'm going to start with jeanette, w
the race stand right now? well, a new rasmussen poll of likely voters showing governor romney leading president obama 49% to 47%. now, that is westboun within thn of error. former mississippi governor haley bar bore join barber join. good evening. > >> greta: have you had any further thoughts about the race? >> for my thinking, the biggest change in the race is to obama's favor and that's been this storm, you know. any day that we're not talking about the economy and jobs, that we're not talking about obama's record for debt and deficits, health care, energy, any day we're talking about something else, that's good for obama, and so i will be surprised if he doesn't make a little bit of a comeback here. he's had a prett pretty solid mt for a month. there wasn't anything happen to stop the movement by romney. what may stop it is this storm and not so much that the president will do a great job, although i don't have any doubt that he will. mostly what happens right after a terrible storm is we know where i come from, it's the local first responders. it's the firemen, the policeman, the
their fellow citizens, so romney's right to be saying let's help, let's help the red cross, the salvation army, but also we're about to elect a president for the next four years, and there are lots of places in the country where he can be campaigning and should be campaigning. i think he's right. he's not going to go out and poke at president obama just like chris christie's not. nobody else is going to. but we got a really big election next tuesday. >> greta: it's sort of interesting. most of the damage is in new jersey and maryland and all these coastal states. they're not the swing states. it seems to me that there would maybe be a political advantage to governor romney because president obama is busy with those states. he can go out to colorado and minnesota, he can go to michigan, and even ohio is touched by the storm. in some ways, the president is sort of locked into position. >> well, virginia's touched by this. pennsylvania very seriously hit by this. there's a lot of overflow into ohio. there's a serious situation there, but the bigger point is that every minute of television today a
maybe we're learning a lesson that the states should take on the role. >> romney: absolutely. every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it to the states, that's the right direction. if you can send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> cenk: that is mental! i can't believe he said that! so we shouldn't have fema at the federal level. what would be doing right now hoping chris christie gets it it right in new jersey? but the federal government wouldn't do anything? and then forget the state and local government. are you kidding me? privatize it? how insane is that? so if you're poor and you couldn't afford whatever rates that romney's friends were going to charge you after he privatized it, sad day for you? ha ha, you get stuck in that? that's a disastrous idea! this is about the core role of the government. are we here for each other in times like this or do we just leave each other to fend for ourselves. apparently romney clearly says during thi
a pretty good job. chris christie, mitt romney's right-hand buddy, has been out there today saying what a great job he's been doing. >> sure. >> that has to be good for him, doesn't it? >> well, we have to see how the cleanup goes and if obama makes a mistake later on. but i would agree usually in the short run a crisis environment tends to help the incumbent president. and the fact is we only have the short run now, so if there's fallout in the long term then it might occur after he were elected. i still think voters are mostly basing this on the economy. maybe you have 1% of voters who are out there undecided. so it's an interesting event, but look, if romney had it in the cards to win before i'm not sure it would shift things enough against him. >> and also it still comes down to swing states and in many of those what may be more important for candidates is the inability to get to places like ohio in the last few days. >> sure, romney spending time in ohio, and that's where this election comes down to. where the average poll has obama up by 2, 2 1/2, 3 points in ohio. you go back thr
and paul ryan! and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate, fox and friends, tried to get christie to dial it back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea, nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i've got a job to do here in new jersey. it's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. i have a job to do. i've got 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> talk about a smackdown. yet despite christie -- some can't help but wonder will christie's newfound love for president obama tilt the election obama's way? talkback question for you, will sandy change the election? facebook.com/carolcnn. your responses later this hour. >>> hundreds are rescued in a northern new jersey town. we'll tell you how the city plans to rescue others who are still stranded t

? >> thank goodness. >> that's right, dana. just think for a second. romney has never been ahead. >> sean: he's ahead now. >> in the real clear politics. >> sean: juan, juan, juan. >> colorado, wisconsin. i can keep going. never, ever. >> sean: listen, you can be as delusional if you want. i absolutely like when you live in denial, but here's the reality, dana. romney has florida sewn up, in my opinion. >> oh, my god, come on. >> sean: in virginia the latest poll shows romney ahead. rasmussen shows romney ahead by two in ohio. i would say it's dead even but it's also pennsylvania, wisconsin, it's michigan, and pennsylvania -- minnesota. no matter what they try to say today, there's no way that chicago -- the obama campaign in chicago thought that seven or six days before an election they were going to have to fight in minnesota. they just -- it never entered their mind, and now they're having to do that, and the fancy footwork is very admirable, but i don't think it will -- i don't think it will take them too far. however, the storm i think you'll see president obama's approval rating which h
swing for independents in favor of romney. it happened right after the first debate if denver. 51-39%. they will have more detail out of the npr public tomorrow. it can tell you this. guess what? tomorrow in his column, karl rove in the "wall street journal" column, he will make prediction on the election turn-out. >> bob: i'll be awake all night waiting for that. >> dana: a lot of peel might be. >> bob: they may. be surprised if it's anything but romney. >> dana: but he will give his numbers, the prediction. >> eric: did you go yet? >> greg: no. >> dana: you did. i thought you gave your phrase. >> greg: no. >> dana: please go. >> greg: forget it. >> dana: we have time. >> greg: i want to make a point, again, i want to go to the hurricane, the hurricane a lot of people on the left are using the hurricane to mock libertarian values. they believe somehow you cannot deal with this issue without big government. not just a straw man. it's wicker man. i can't put out four-alarm fire but i can make decisions about birth control and free speech. the debate is not about big government vers
there are three possible out comes right now, close obama win, close romney win or big romney win and if you talk to some republicans, both connected to the campaign and one step away from the center of the campaign they are starting to talk about the possibility and you see in the republicans movement into pennsylvania, minnesota, and perhaps michigan the possibility that they are not just trying to hedge their bets or trying to expand the map out of desperation but a real belief this thing could be bigger, an oregon polls that show the shows the race close, certainly closer than the president won four years ago i think the momentum is with romney and the obama people are not just spinning when they say, look, out of that first debate in denver he doesn't have momentum where he overwhelmed us he brought home the base be does president's in number has not chanced by any means but pretty pistol hid and that means governor romney has upward momentum or has had it, maybe that has stalled we don't really though but the president does not have bad momentum he is not collapsing in any way, i think that
. >> and it has shown a national lead for governor romney. >> clearly, if the gal hundred poll is right then the swing states won't matter, if romney wins the popular vote by three or four points then he is going to manage to win enough of the swing states. >> rose: let's be clear though if romney wins the popular vote by four or five points, then he will also win enough of the swing states to win the election because the premise being that the swing states won't be that much different from -- >> ohio is a swing state for a reason in that it resemitbls united states, microsome, microcosm, urban areas, you could have a case where romney wins the popular vote by one point and obama wins high row in iowa by one point that is possible, maybe one or two-point shift, but there is hmm no way to look at the history of this country or try to do the more complex things i do mathematical models of it, very unlikely to have win the popular by four or five point and lose the electorial poll. >> rose: why go the polls show romney winning the national vote and not winning the majority of swing states?
, and he still has to lock down these southern states. i think you're right. the romney people say they're in a much better position in ohio than these public polls show. if they're wrong about that, he's not going to win. >> every public media poll, willie, has to be cooking their books for barack obama. >> or assuming the electorate. >> or assuming the electorate's wrong. and if the electorate has changed so radically in two years that quinnipiac is confused, somebody will give a desser tags on it after the election. i'm frustrated this morning because they keep telling me, don't believe the media polls. here we are a week out, less than a week out. it's still five points in ohio. i can tell you as a practicing politician, if you're down five points a week out and you were down five points two weeks out, your problem. >> and obama at 50, not at 47%. >> and obama is at 50% in ohio, willie. >> one other note inside that "new york times" poll, conventional wisdom is obama would struggle with white working-class voters in ohio anyway, not in virginia. but in ohio he's even with romney amo
think he's exactly right. >> let's talk more about mitt romney and the hurricane because the issue of fema and funding, federal funding for fema has come up. it all started with the republican primary that is hosted by cnn's john king when mitt romney was asked a question about fema. let's listen. >> there are some people who say to do it on a case-by-case basis and others say maybe we are learning a lesson here with the state taking on more. how do you deal with something like that? >> absolutely. every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and accepted it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> now there are democrats saying this is mitt romney saying he wants to privatize fema, what does that mean in the wake of a disaster like this? are these tough questions for mitt romney right now l? >> i think in the wake of the emotional news story, the concept of federalism doesn't really break through. but with mitt romney, first of all, ever endorsing i
this is of course the native state of mitt romney. you're right, i think that it's still the most likely scenario is whoever wins ohio going to win the presidency, but things are getting so weird and these numbers are getting so contradictory and no scam -bld that you have to start thinking about these possibilities about what if mitt romney lost ohio by an hair if he was to pick up a rich state like michigan then the map becomes viable again. it's getting weird out there. megyn: it was a 14 point race a month ago now it's showing three points n. minnesota it was eight points in president obama's favor a month ago, now it's as tight as 3 points. in pennsylvania it was nine points or more a mow ago, some polls are showing it now within four points and the president is sending sur gather to these states and buying ad time in response to the romney camp doing the same in those states. we had a rasmussen poll that showed romney up two in ohio on monday and a dispatch poll out of ohio showing it tied up in ohio. team obama tells us you cannot believe these numbers. this is a manipulation by the folks
messages so far, both attacking governor romney. we'll debate what and who is behind these messages, right after this break. >> i have four generations of family on this earth and my life has been very blessed, and if the republicans steal this election i'm going to track down mitt romney and give him -- megyn: fox news alert on a little bit of good news for the more than 9 million people commuting in and out of new york city. the governor just announced there will be some limited service on the two commuter rail systems in and out much new york later today. but officials are estimating full service will not be fully restored for weeks if not months. and this could have a big impact even beyond the borders of the big apple. trace gallagher is live with the update. >> reporter: nobody knows which service will come online tomorrow or the day after. in the tristate area people use this every day. the transportation authority said of the 5,000 square miles they cover, not a single corner went untouched. 36 hours after the floodwaters came into the subway stations, the floodwaters remain. the e
the friday before the tuesday election? >> bill: i see romney with momentum in that state right now. i think romney -- >> -- he certainly has support among independence. >> bill: right. >> i think in those plus -- obama plus four polls, bill, as we have talked about, they had a party identification advantage of democrats. >> bill: i don't believe that i think rasmussen is on it i think romney is up by a little right now. okay, now, you have a fascinating race and real quick now, david, in massachusetts between scott brown, the incumbent republic senator and elizabeth warren, the liberal democratic challenger. you have the race to warren by 7, the "boston globe" polling in the same period of time just about the same likely voters has it tied. you say. >> we have been different before. suffolk has been different than the conventional polling. i stick by the number. i think what you are see is that in this poll scott brown independent women from moved from brown to warren. union households from moved from brown to warren. we picked that up between the september poll and the october poll. massac
in after the nomination? >> right. but there are other variables include governor romney wasn't comfortable doing the kinds of things they did at the convention. i mean, one of the big mysteries which i still have not unraveled is at the convention, you had testimonials from these families who dealt with governor romney when he was engaging in, engaging in extraordinarily generous and personal acts of kind tons their family, we didn't see him before the conventn, we barely have seen him since the convention, they were amongst the most powerful and emotional aspects of the convention. >> rose: you were close, you thought of this every day why can't you asked the question buy can't you run those commercials. >> they are doing some of them now. >> rose: you don't see them nearly as sufficient as you might have expected when you look at the impact. >> i think there were internal divisions, including romney itself, himself. >> rose: what is the internal division within the romney camp? >> i don't know 35 is any now, i think the denver debate solved a hot of problems for them, including any repor
to election day, governor romney resumed a full campaign schedule today. he's in florida right now. about to kick off the second event of the day in south florida. congressman paul ryan is in wisconsin. vice president joe biden attending rallies in florida and bill clinton is in iowa for the obama campaign, of course. let's bring in the political panel. david goodfriend and rachel smelkin. thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> i want to get to this poll showing the president still holding on to his lead in ohio, florida and virginia. we know that when you look at national polls, depending on which one, a different picture but it is about the battlegrounds and likely voters here. what do we make of the new polls? >> hurricane sandy introduced a massive unknown in to the final days of the race and that's the first thing. we are not yet seeing that reflikted in the polling. having said that, it looks for the president's team like they're still holding on in ohio. the margins closed there as in other battleground states but that's an all-important state for both campaig
of the country. host: reid wilson? guest: mitt romney was right in the sense. there are 47 percent of americans that will not vote for mitt romney and 47% that will not vote for president obama under any circumstances. problem with romney's comments is he did not stop there, he defined that 47% in a way that it was a serious gaffe and it caused a big drop if poll numbers around the country for republicans up and down the ballot. that was a problem. i think that was the moment, the 47% video, when the republican numbers started going down. one guy in particular who never recovered was senator scott brown in massachusetts. we are getting the feeling that mid september when the video came out was the last moment in which he was tied with democrat elizabeth warren. now most republicans in massachusetts and d.c. think that brown is probably not coming back next year. host: i want to go back to the "washington times" the game changes they said to watch out for in the coming six days. former oakland -- former president bill clinton was there yesterday. guest: remember back in the 1984 race, they still
